What is Hyaluronic Acid?

Hyaluronic Acid is a compound naturally present in the human body.  It is highly concentrated in fluids in the eyes and the joints, where it acts as a cushion and lubricant due to its moisture retention capabilities.  Able to hold up to 1000 times its molecular weight in water, hyaluronic acid is a truly unique compound.

It’s not surprising, then, to learn that hyaluronic acid is utilized in a variety of medicinal ways to treat a host of different conditions.  It is used to treat cataracts, cancer, improve osteoarthritis, and promote the healing of wounds, just to name a few.  

The reason we’re talking about hyaluronic acid now is because of its dermatologic relevance.  When applied topically, hyaluronic acid works in a number of ways to enhance the health and appearance of your complexion.

Hyaluronic acid truly is an amazing compound, which is why Cosmedica features it in a number of its amazing, anti-aging products.
